Listening to Jason Upton sing brings me into the presence of someone who waits on God. There is a unique quality to his singing - a combination of worship and prayer, set to a strange kind of music. Drawn into his prayer world.

It is our human condition to wait.
Noah waited for the dove to return from flying over flooded waters.
Moses and Aaron waited for pharaoh by the Nile before God turned the water into blood.
People waited while Moses talked to God.
They waited 40 years in the desert.
Ruth waited for Boaz's decision - reader, she married him, became an ancestor of Jesus.
People waited on God.

While I wait, I pray that I may listen. Not just wait.
